For the Lord God is a sun and shield: The Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. Psalm 84: 11
God does not withhold
Our eyes to behold
A lone cross of gold
Lit by the sun's ray,
On Veteran's Day.
The soldiers shield
Who died in the field,
Is a cross of glory
In freedoms story
Throughout history;
Heroes giving liberty
For their country
To be free.
Poetry by me AJP

Another glorious day..I did not realize until after I shot this picture the tiny weed standing next to me shaped in the form of a gold cross lit by the sun...

    Glorious SP Andrea!! Seeing the little cross beside you reminds me of a little something to share with you. I hope you don't mind. I work at the airport, and across the runway about a mile off, there is this little hill lined with trees. On one in particular I always look at, it's shaped like a cross at the top. Every time I look in that direction, I always look for that tree. :) I just wanted to share that after seeing this shot.

    Thank you for the comments...I am glad you shared the

    story, Michael about the tree shaped like a cross at the top...I would really love it if you shot a picture of that tree and posted it on your site...It would be nice if you shot it back lit in the sun. It sounds beautiful!

    Some people would count that golden cross as a sign! :-) Wonderful light and capture.

    A lovely symbol to enhance your beautiful SP, and make it relevant to this special day. Very beautiful, Andrea.

    Andrea, everything about this, the verse, the poetry, the framing and composition, the light, together with Mike's little story, yield one of the best shots in what has been a truly remarkable series.

    Oh, Andrea, this is so lovely. I enjoyed so much this wonderful glowing photo with the cross shining brightly by you! The poetry is glorious. And your outfit for this shot is magnficant. Fyi, I explore the woods everyday, and for anyone who may not know there is an evergreen which forms a cross when new growth appears on the ends of the branches. Just thought I'd add that. Bravo, Andrea!!!

    This SP has a such a warm and spiritual feel to it, even without nature's cross. The golden cross, though, is a big added plus.
